Do you remember Baz Luhrmann's Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen song from the late 90's? I like the whole song but one line that really sticks out to me is:

"Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your 
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they 
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year 
olds I know still don’t"

I think I like it because I feel like I still have time to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up". At the moment I have a lot of little things going on in my life and all these little things add up to a big life but I feel like there's more...I just don't know what yet. I feel like there is this dissatisfaction going on, and I feel almost guilty for saying that because my life is really good and I'm surrounded by wonderful people who love me. I'm even struggling with how to put this into words because I am so lucky and blessed to have the life I do that it seems wrong to say I want more, like I'm being disloyal or just plain selfish.

Quotes like this are encouraging...

Are you doing what you love? Does your life feel full? What was the turning point for you? How did you know "this is it"?


  1. I do not remeber that song, I'll have to look it up, but I love that quote! I just hit my 30's and have a lot of regrets. I dont feel like i am where i should be for this age. I just recently, in the past couple of years, figured out "what I want to be". Now I am trying to figure out how to get training for it.

    1. Good for you Paige, figuring it out is the first step. I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately trying to figure out what my calling is so you're ahead of me. I hope you'll keep in touch and keep me posted, I love hearing about peoples journeys.
